This week we are getting double blackberries! These heavenly berries are gone in a flash, so when we have the chance to get more we take it. My kids usually devour these before we make it home from distribution, so I’m hoping I have a shot at these tasty berries this time around. This week’s potatoes are another first for the season. I don’t know how they do it, but Dave and Ramona Sanders have a real knack for growing potatoes. They are backyard farmers in Camp Verde and their garden is absolutely incredible. You can also find them every Saturday at the Verde Valley Farmers’ Market in Camp Verde, along with Willowbrook Farm, Fasteen Farms, and a whole array of other local growers. If you ever want extra items or are looking for more produce, definitely check out this market. It is my favorite in the Verde Valley, with a huge array of produce all grown within 50 miles of the market. Can’t beat that for local!
Have a lovely week!
